I posted this in the morning news bit but...
Fraud in a government funded operation? NEVER
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution recently did a series on the fraud going on in the metro Atlanta government schools and the E-Rate program. There was basically millionds of dollars worth of equipment that was purchased well above the going market rate and were never installed in the schools. They just sat in warehouses.
There is no oversight and no accountability with the program so, with it being other people's money, of course there was going to be fraud.
What ultimately kills me though is that the Atlanta City Government School system spends $13K+ per student and has the WORST educational system in Georgia. Third graders recently took a test to see if they are ready to pass on to the next grade and 20% of Atlanta government school kids failed. School systems surrounding the Atlanta school system all had failure rates of less than 9%. Which just goes to show that money is not going to solve the education problem in government schools.
